From the Superintendent


It was a busy summer and an exciting start to the fall at Hamilton County DD Services.

We were excited to welcome back the students at Bobbie B. Fairfax and Margaret B. Rost Schools, and students are back in classes and enjoying the new school year. You can see photos from the first day of class at both schools here. You can also see photos of students and families from Rost participating in the annual Harvest Home Parade here.

Last month we hosted our first Advocacy Summit to give local advocates an opportunity to network, learn from each other, and hear from experienced presenters. Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus recorded an introduction video to kick off the Summit, and Commissioner Stephanie Summerow-Dumas attended the event to present awards for Reverend Robert Harris and Commissioner Todd Portune for their commitment to advocating for people with disabilities. It was a wonderful and well-attended event!

Finally, next week is Election Day and Hamilton County voters will see the renewal of the Developmental Disabilities Services Levy on the ballot. The levy provides more than 80% of the funding for our agency, supporting everything we do, including Early Intervention, our schools, our advocacy team, service and support administrators (SSAs), and Medicaid waivers. You can learn what else will be on your ballot, find your polling location, and more on the Board of Elections website.

Sincerely,

Alice Pavey
